"This extroadinary textbook provides its readers with an exhaustive survey of accepted and controversial concepts in the field. […] The quality of figures, those in the technical chapters in particular, is excellent. This impressive textbook is recommended reading for all physicians involved in the managment of prostate cancer." Professor Paul Meria, European Urology Today, 2006

'If you are looking for a new textbook on prostate cancer I can thoroughly recommend this as an in-depth look at all aspects. It is easy to use as a reference book due to its excellent layout but can also be read from cover to cover […] I feel it should at least occupy a place in all hospital libraries but more appropriately should be in the offices of all urology departments providing easy access to all, especially those approaching their FRCS examination.' - Dan Burke, Urology News, 11:2 (2007)

‘This book will keep the clinician informed of the current state of play in most of the modalities of treatment available. The clinician will also have an outstanding knowledge of the aetiology and molecular mechanisms … and a very complete understanding on where diagnosis and treatment are heading. This tome should appear on the shelves of the seriously minded clinicians interested in keeping abroad based knowledge of this important disease… This book also benefits from a joint UK and US editorial team.’ - Highly Commended, Urology Category, 2006 BMA Medical Book Competition

"This is the most definitive text on the subject to date. The information in this book is aimed at informing healthcare professionals in urology and oncology, and in family practice. It contains contributions from the world's leading authorities on prostate cancer." The Society of Authors and the Royal Society of Medicine Book Awards 2006

This is a welcome addition to the reference literature on prostate cancer. All involved and interested in this disease will find many aspects of this book of interest and of value. It will find a place in many personal and institutional libraries'. - Doody's Book Review Service
